Kerydin is an antifungal medicine used to treat onychomycosis, the fungal infection of the nails.
Current labeling only states that Tavaborole can be used only on onychomycosis of the toenails. Tavaborole belongs to the oxaborole class of antifungals. It works by inhibiting production of an enzyme in fungal cells, causing it to stop growing and die.
Onychomycosis is a common health problem and recurrence after treatment is not uncommon. Doctors prescribe Tavaborole to treat oncychomycosis caused by the fungi Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes.
Tavaborole requires a prescription.
